Ajax keeper André Onana has told the media he hopes his teammates join Barcelona.

Matthijs de Ligt, Frenkie de Jong, and Onana himself have all been linked with a move to Barcelona. For Onana it would be a triumphant return after leaving Barça's academy.

“I hope [Barcelona signs De Jong and De Ligt,]" the keeper said. "I have spoken with both of them and I have told them that they will like the city and the weather. For them, these are important aspects. Going to a big team is never easy for young stars, but Barça has always known how to treat players of their type."

Onana admitted he had not been contacted by Barça yet, but he affirmed that a return home would be a dream come true.
